    One thing I forgot to mention. The pump may have a small hole in the center of the cap. When you push the pump inward, put your thumb over it and when you're pulling in back out release your thumb. That's the only way that pump works. If that doesn't work, you will have to try bleeding the system right at the fuel injectors. That is a last resort , but works 99% of the time. Good luck keep me informed

Being a diesel, and changing the pump, you de pressurized the system. . Sometimes near the fuel filter they install a pump, or on the side of the motor near the fuel line. . It's like an old coleman stove. There should be a rod to pump the pressure back into the system. You may want to look at that route. If the truck ran after the fuel pump was installed and you let it sit a day and won't start, I would re check the tightness of the bolts and filters. Sounds like you have air in the system. Remember diesels run on pressure. Good luck let me know if this helps you

    Do you see a diesel hand pump under the hood? If so, pump it until it gets hard to pump. Then make sure to screw the pump knob back in before trying to start it again. Have a look and see if you can find such a pump

    If the wiring was burned out, you should look for the reason for that first. You need to find that pump I mentioned. Pump fuel back into the system. Your fuel filter may be empty as well. , but you need to find this pump. This will bring fuel back into the system. If you don't prime it, you could burn out your new pump.

I have an 88 mercury grand marquis sterted drove all day went the next day car wouldnt start someone told me timeing chain jumped replaced that replaced starter selinoid stater spark plugs router router...


Lets start at the beginning.
Did anybody check to see if the timing chain was really in need of replacing ?
Did you replace the starter and solenoid because it would not crank ?
Is it now getting spark to the plugs, and fuel to the injectors ?
Are the injectors getting voltage and a ground signal from the computer ?
Do the cylinders have proper compression ?
Is the rotor in the distributor turning when you crank the engine ?
